  • The Community Recycling Committee of the League of Women Voters will be holding a four-fold recycling activity at the Presbyterian Community Church of the Rockies, along with our partners at the Presbyterian Church, the Rotary Club of Estes Park, and Bestway Painting:

E-Cycle:  Relieve yourselves of old TVs, monitors, modems and batteries (alkaline and rechargeable Lithium and/or NiCad). 

Recycling electronics requires a fee wherever one recycles them. Here is OUR price schedule, which includes the cost of transporting these goods, and paying for recycling at CHaRM in Boulder or elsewhere. See our reasonable price schedule here.

Note: We will NOT accept microwave ovens or scrap metal. Take these to CHaRM in Boulder.

Paint recycle:   Correctly dispose  of paint products  

(see our Recycle Paint Products page)

Shredathon:  Shred your sensitive office papers, checks, etc. Staples may be included!

Freecycle Estes:  After all the other activities, shop 'til you drop for free stuff other people have dropped off for YOU!

The members of your Community Recycling Committeeare using this activity to remove things that may wind up in our waste stream, and thence into the Larimer County Landfill.

We are committed to help change people's mindset about how to go about our daily business, and move towards a zero-waste environment. That will help the public, our business, and our bottom lines, including keeping our environment sustainable.

Please let your neighbors know about this. 

Start gathering your materials. April 22nd is just around the corner!

We welcome volunteers for these activities -

  • For E-Cycle, contact Steve Kaplan (stevebkaplan@centurylink.net or 914.564.1836)
  • For Freecycle, contact Joanie Crockett (970.586.4540)
  • For Shred-a-thon, contact Tara Moenning (tara@aspenbrookinvestments.com)
  • For traffic control and other volunteer services, contact Judi Smith (rrrcyc2se@gmail.com)

We had a very rewarding time doing these activities last April. Help Estes Park manage their waste stream in a more sustainable way. Come with your recyclables on October 21st!

Duck Race Day!

Adopt a Duck for $20 each to support the Community Recycling Committee (#55 on the Duck Race adoption form) and then enjoy a day of festivities focused on one of the community's most beloved fundraising events.

The Community Recycling Committee sponsors a craft booth at the Duck Race Festival in Bond Park where children can make Olafs, frogs, ducks, and lady bugs using recycled materials (a repeat of a popular activity from last year's GeoFest).

Besides the festival in Bond Park, Duck Race includes preliminary events at Nicky's Resort beginning at 11:00 a.m., with the Duck Race start time there at 1:00 p.m.  The finish line is at George Hix Plaza adjacent to the Wheel Bar downtown.

Ducks may be adopted online at epduckrace.org or by picking up adoption forms from Community Recycling Committee members.  Donations enable the Community Recycling Committee to purchase animal-resistant recycling bins, purchase materials to support recycling education programs in our schools, and maintain and distribute current information on how to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle in the Estes Valley.  The Duck Race is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Estes Park.

Garbage Garage Field Trip

 

Who says learning about trash can't be fun? Not the visitors to the Garbage Garage, Larimer County's waste and recycling education center. Join the Community Recycling Committee for a fun and fact-filled field trip to the Garbage Garage Education Center in Fort Collins. Located at the Larimer County Landfill, the center had its grand opening in April 2003 and continues to host scheduled tour groups as well as drop-in visitors.

Learn about the challenges and opportunities we face right here in our own community. Get your questions answered on what is and is not recyclable here, and the reasons why. Have you ever wondered how a landfill works? Or what gets made out of all that stuff we recycle? Learn how to safely deal with household hazardous waste. (The average household is home to more than 60 hazardous materials at any given time, you know!)

Contact JoAnn Batey at joannbatey@gmail.com for information and to sign up.  Attendees will meet at the Stanley Fairgrounds and carpool to Fort Collins.
